People's Names by Holly Ingraham
Call Number: SC Annex Stacks CS2305 .I54 1997
Tens of thousands of names from almost every culture, contemporary and historical are included in this unique reference work. For each cultural group's onomasticon, an essay outlines its rules for naming, if different from English, along with its use of family names, gender specific names, and name order. A listing of at least 50 first names for each gender and at least 100 family names is then provided for each culture.
